After a slow start against slow-it-down Virginia, North Carolina imposed its will – and preferred playing style – in a 93-81 victory here at the Smith Center here on Saturday. P.J. Hairston, the sophomore guard who started for the second consecutive game, led the Tar Heels (17-8, 7-5 ACC) with a career-high 29 points. Marcus Paige added 17 for the Heels, who shot 49.2 percent and made 13 3-pointers – the most they’ve made in an ACC game this season.
